Are you looking for some Valentine’s Day inspiration and ideas for a pretty tablescape? Follow along as I show you how I created a garden-inspired Valentine’s Day tablescape using the most beautiful fresh-cut blooms.
If you’re not big on crowds, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend the night at home. Making dinner together, and enjoying each other’s company in the privacy of your own home can be even more fun than going out to dinner in a crowded restaurant.
I’ve created a garden-inspired Valentine’s Day-themed tablescape this year. This can work for a romantic dinner, a Valentine’s Day party, or a Valentine’s dinner with close friends.
Garden-Inspired Valentine’s Day Centerpiece
Every year, my Valentine’s Day table centerpiece always includes a flower arrangement. I use a color scheme of red, pink, and white.
In the past, I’ve usually used grocery store flowers like roses or tulips for my Valentine’s Day tablescapes.
For this floral centerpiece, I decided to go all out and pick flowers from the local florist as well as the grocery store. Here are the beautiful blooms that I chose:
Here’s a tip for you. Always ask the florist if they will charge you for a floral arrangement rather than charging by stem. It saved me about $30!
Enhancing with Mason Jars and Faux Flowers
Adding mason jars with tulips to my Valentine’s Day tablescape brings a garden touch.
Another easy way to create a floral arrangement for Valentine’s Day is to use faux flowers. They look so realistic these days.
The Valentine’s Day Table Setting
Despite not being a fan of red, it’s a must for Valentine’s Day. I’ve balanced it with shades of pink in the centerpiece and used red and white for the place settings.
The white plates, wicker chargers, and red napkins shown here are from HomeGoods. The gold flatware and table runner are from Target.
SHOP RED AND WHITE NAPKINS
SHOP WHITE DISHES
Pretty red glasses add a pop of color to the table. These were bought at a local home decor store but some red vintage glassware would look amazing here as well.

Add Sweet Treats to Your Valentine’s Table
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like chocolate-covered strawberries. Even faux ones are a romantic touch. They are reusable and add a playful element to the setting.
Add baked goods whether they’re store-bought or homemade, like mini cupcakes, on a white cake stand.
I tell myself every year that I will make homemade cupcakes for the following year. Somehow it never happens and I buy them from the store.
We try not to have too many sweets in the house, but Valentine’s Day is an exception.
Adding a tiered tray or plate with a glass cloche covering your sweet treats is another beautiful and easy way to display your Valentine’s goodies.
